Our speaker today was Ms. Berni Crockford, who presented on the topic “The Karen Kids Have Moved On”.
Berni said, “We are a society dedicated to the education and support of refugee children from the ethnic Karen people currently living in Thailand. Our interests are humanitarian, not political”.
The Karen Kids Society (‘Karen Kids’) is a registered Hong Kong charity. It was founded in 2006 by a small group of business people who live and work in Hong Kong. Karen Kids provides shelter, education, clothing and food to over 80 Burmese children – aged from 10 months to 14 years - currently living as refugees in Thailand. Beyond taking care of their day-to-day needs, we want to offer them a secure future – surely a basic human right for any child, regardless of religion or heritage”.

Sergeant at Arms, Rtn Ernie collected $1,240 for raffle and fines, the raffle prizes was a bottle of red wine and the winner was PP Kishore.
